SALT LAKE CITY — Two Utah women have become artists in their own right, and their medium is LEGO.

Jennifer Smart and Susan Earls will show off their work on national television Tuesday evening.

They’ll take part in Season 2 of “Lego Masters” which airs on FOX 13 at 7 p.m.

“We are not your standard LEGO builders. I mean we are two moms that just bring a different element to the show,” Earls said.

About 10 years ago, Earls found her passion for LEGO when she began buying sets for her son, whom was 5 at the time.

“We started buying LEGO for him and it blossomed into I would buy more LEGO for myself than for him,” she said.

LEGO has always been part of Smart’s live in some way or another but about six years ago, she found her true passion for it.

“I wanted to answer the question can you build the curvature the shadows the subtleties of a human face with these square brick,” she said.

Quickly, Smart began spending more and more time doing LEGO and it has even become a business for her.

“I didn’t want to share it with anybody, I was like people are going to think I am mad. This is crazy,” she said.

The two have stopped hiding their love for LEGO and are now embracing it. They met in a Utah LEGO group and decided to go on the show together.

“We are here because we like to create new things and we want to see what we can create under the constraints of the show,” Smart said.

There will be a free watch party for the premiere of LEGO Masters Season 2 on Tues. at the Scera Center for the Arts in Orem. CLICK HERE to register.
